New Technique Fun Album

Looking for different album that will challenge you and offer you a creative twist?
We've found it with the Pink Paisley Parisian Anthology Albums!
I've wanted a larger style canvas album to play around with for a long time. This canvas covered album gives you the free to alter the front to your hearts content. This means painting it, stamping on it, inking on it, or use it as we did with a photo transfer.

Keely made this album for us, and used the theme "through the years" and included words to the famous song on the pages. She used photos she found of her Dad as a child, and growing up which are absolutely priceless.
This album comes with 20 divided page protectors in assorted sizes. Keely reproduced her family photos at the local photo place, and sized them to fit into the divided page protectors.
What's great about the album are the papers and accents that come with the line. The paper line is RESIST. What is resist? The paper has a glossy white surface printed ONTO the paper that can barely be seen with the naked eye, but when ink or paint is put to the papers the background resist pattern shows through. Keely accented all the pages in her book using Tim Holtz Distress Ink and the ink blending tool.
The page protectors have great little flaps on them, you can play around with the them. Hide journaling there, or add special photos. The tickets shown in the photo above can be purchased as well. They come white, and you accent them with ink. (Distress Ink and Ink Blending Tool)

It's a great fun way to build a special album for a special memory or loved one!
The Pink Paisley Anthology Line includes clear stamps, elements, journal spots, tickets, the album and papers. It can be found on our website here.

Let's talk about the photo transfer. I've been wondering about this for a long time. I finally discovered a cool product by Claudine Hellmuth called Multi Medium Gloss. You can use it for photo transfer.

Photo transfer can be done with a transparency or a laser copy. Keely and I both played around with this technique and I think the laser copy is the best option. You can take your images or photos to any copy store and ask them to copy laser for you. Remember if you are printing text you will need to have your text printed backwards. Here's a video by Claudine Hellmuth showing the technique. Don't be concerned that she is using paint, she says at the end the same instructions apply to Multi Medium Gloss which is what we are using.

It's a fun technique to try!
